Situated overlooking the sailing hub of English & Falmouth Harbour, only a few minutes drive away with all its historical sites, bars and restaurants, beaches and watersport attractions. Learn to sail at the Yacht Club, charter a daysailer, go for a wonderful canter on Rendezvous bay, or spend the day with the magical beach to yourselves. Or just lay back in the Gazebo by the pool with a good book!
Year Purchased: 1969
About the owner: I sailed into English Harbour in 1967 and fell in love with the island. I built my house in 1969 in the old colonial style, and later built a cottage for my mother, and much later a small guest cottage. Unfortunately my husband and I lost our pensions to a very bad investment, and now I am renting out both cottages. My husband and I are both keen sailors, riders (I started the Springhill Riding Club just nearby in 1987) We love our three dogs and our 2 acre garden which we have filled with indigenous flowering plants and trees.
Why the Owner Chose Falmouth Harbour: We love Falmouth for its peaceful green location, it feels a long way from everywhere, but is only 5 minutes drive to lots of activities and night life - the best of both worlds.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Birds & Bees (we have had several engagements happen here!) is peaceful and quiet and yet near so many lively bars, restaurants, etc. There is a Mediterranean port feeling to the Yacht Club Marina with its coffee bars & boutiques and mega yachts, and yet it is only a few minutes away! You can spend the day by the pool, swinging in a hammock or at the beach, and at night enjoy a delicious dinner and dancing under the stars in one of the many restaurants in the Harbour.
